    I think it’s so important to remember where students are going next. I teach in a school in which the vast majority of students are “behind” where they *should* be (and I imagine others do as well). It’s easy to skip things because they don’t seem important, but many times those skills will be built on in the next grade!

    As a special ed teacher, I don’t often have students who have even met the grade-level standard, but I can see myself planning like this to help the high-flyers get there. I could plan for my “target” of what they will understand, and the grade-level standard can be the extension.
